The Bunkley who was in Halifax county was Joshua Bunkley. He is listed in the census of 1779 he then moved or changed with the county line by 1782 when his widow was in Charlotte county.

I believe that Joshua was from IOW, I found a Joshua who witness a deed in 1754 and he was the right age at the time.

I think that he went to Halifax or Mecklenburg and married Matilda Dawson. She is mentioned in her brother William Dawson's will. He was from Mecklenburg county.

THere was a Bunkley in Brunswick. He was John Bunkley in 1759-1761 in deeds with John Pilkington. He sold his interest in the estate of Joseph Driver (probably a relation). I think that he was also from IOW. While I was searching for Bunkley's in Brunswick, I found a Robert, John, Ralph and Moses in the same county at this same time.

THen it hit me that I have been unable to find the Moses Bunkley mentioned in the passenger book but there was a Moses Dunkley and with the way they wrote back then, transcribers could easily mistake one for the other. What do you think?
